A bit of history… This luxury British brand was founded in 1856 by 21-year-old Thomas Burberry and is still one of the most popular labels on the market. Then known as ‘Burberrys of London’, it originally focused on outdoor attire, renowned for the creation of gabardine, a water-resistant, resilient fabric. Today, it is associated with its iconic beige tartan, initially designed to line the trench coats of World War soldiers. The 90s, however, saw Burberry take on a new demographic, with the check print being adopted by the younger consumers, Burberry began to introduce more affordable popular fashion trends into its traditional lines
Burberry has had them all, the Beckhams, Will.i.am, Eddie Redmayne and Kate Moss to name a varied few. The tartan has adorned many from a variety of ages and backgrounds, giving Burberry one of the most diverse demographics in the fashion industry. In 2016, Burberry looked back over 150 years with The Tale of Thomas Burberry, featuring Domhnall Gleeson, Sienna Miller, Lily James and Dominic West, recognising the achievements of the tailor and reminding the modern world of its traditional beginnings.
